PONTNEWYDD MALE CHOIR NEWSLETTER
23 APRIL 2019
On the evening of Thursday 21st we entertained senior citizens at the New Inn Community Centre. As ever it was a pleasant and not too taxing evening. Tea and biscuits are always welcome and some were in bed before ten.
Then - Cwmbrân Town Centre was the location of short performances on 22nd and 23rd – would any other choir be prepared to turn out on three successive days? The first of these was at the Friday 10:00am opening of a new Cancer Research UK shop and the second at a Singathong on the bandstand in aid of the Tenovus Cancer Care Fund .
Three other choirs took part on the Saturday and it was a real treat to be able to listen to such a variety of songs sung so entertainingly. The audience obviously enjoyed it and the Tenovus Cancer Care Fund inform us that £623 was raised from the collection. Perhaps this would have been increased if the event had been better publicised – in the week preceding the event there had been no mention in the ‘Forthcoming events’ section of the Cwmbran Town Centre web page!
March was a busy month....
It started well on St. David’s Day. Our concert with the Newport choir was a big success with both choirs performing well, the artistes on top form and Barrie weaving his magic.
Our thanks to both musical teams for steering us safely through another ‘first’.
